We are pleased to announce a call for participants for a Workshop on 'Modern Approaches to English Language Teaching' for faculty of English at Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur, India, from 16 to 17 August 2013.

[UPDATE] Speaking in Two Voices: Academics Parenting Children with Disabilities--NeMLA Harrisburg 4/3-4/6: Abstracts due 9/30

Angela Ridinger-Dotterman/Suffolk County Community College

The growth of Disability Studies over the past two decades appears as an indication that academe is becoming more inclusive of those with disabilities. Scholarship increasingly focuses on the representation of various disabilities within literary texts, and more disability-centered texts are finding their way onto course syllabi. What does this mean for those of us who are both academics and parents of exceptional children?

CfP for SCMS 2014 proposed panel: The Spatial Politics of Classical Hollywood

Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 5:08am
Dr. Anna Sloan, University of Sussex

Proposed panel: The Spatial Politics of Classical Hollywood

In light of the "spatial turn" in cinema studies of the past decade, this panel aims to revisit and reconceptualise issues of space, place and geography in relation to classical Hollywood cinema. Certain Hollywood genres have been robustly explored in terms of these issues in past scholarship (e.g. the western, science fiction), as well as certain directors (e.g. Ford, Minnelli) and stars (e.g. Valentino), yet much territory remains unexplored. This panel seeks a diverse range of papers that either re-think spatial politics in more established areas, or that explore new areas, in ways that reflect the significant developments in scholarship surrounding space and place in recent years.

[UPDATE] From God's eye to the Big Brother's room. Geographies of espionage. ONLINE: May 2014

ALTRE MODERNITA' UNIVERSITA' DEGLI STUDI DI MILANO

The function of the eye that spies on us all apparently has never been benevolent, be it a tangible eye, an intangible, or a technological one. From the stern God of the Old Testament — who tracked down the culprits and punished them — to the evolution of modern dystopias, the eye has become increasingly implacable, ubiquitous, and immediate in its expressions, so that there is no time, nor space, left for a postponed punishment. If we want to find a good eye, a fair spy, it is necessary to shift to the side of the observer, of the hero (in this case, with no anti prefix), who sacrifices his/her safety for a larger good, with no doubts or hesitations.

The papers in the session will seek to expand upon J.L.

Undergraduate Refereed Journal Needs Reviewers

updated: 
Friday, July 12, 2013 - 11:08am
Queen City Writers, University of Cincinnati

Queen City Writers is a refereed journal that publishes essays and multimedia work by undergraduate students affiliated with any post-secondary institution. We seek faculty reviewers to complement our current staff. Graduate students, contingent faculty, and tenured faculty are welcome. Reviewers for our journal need two characteristics: 1. A commitment to undergraduate writing, digital composing, and publication; 2. A professionalism that means submitting thorough reviews that meet our journal's guidelines by deadlines. We ask that our reviewers offer rigorous feedback aimed at facilitating publication-quality work, but also show sensitivity and an encouraging attitude toward undergraduate (and inexperienced) writers.
